Seau sacked

In their continued effort to clear space against the salary cap, whatever it might become, the Dolphins have released veteran linebacker Junior Seau. The move, which was expected for a while, will save a little under $3 million on the 2006 cap.

The Dolphins also officially announced they had waived tight end Lorenzo Diamond, who served as the backup to Randy McMichael in 2005. That move was a little surprising, considering Diamond didn't cost much against the cap and he appeared to do an adequate job in his first season with the Dolphins.

Seau also played well early last season, but for the second consecutive year his season was cut short by an injury.

The 37-year-old Seau, who keeps himself in great shape and was just the victim of bad luck the last two years, is hoping to play another season and it's not inconceivable the Dolphins would bring him back at the right price.

On the subject of veterans, a week after being released by the Dolphins, Sam Madison has visited with the New York Giants.

Finally, veteran defensive tackle Sam Adams is expected to meet with the Dolphins on Tuesday, a few days after being released by the Buffalo Bills.

Adams is a run-stuffing lineman in the mold of Keith Traylor, but while he's younger he also is likely to ask for a lot more than the $770,000 Traylor is scheduled to earn in 2006.
